Reflective Statement:

I have found Maya to be very interesting and enjoyable. I had briefly encountered the software last year at college and modelled some simple things, but I found it much more interesting after learning about more elements of the software and am excited to learn more. I like the logical elements of Maya as much as I enjoy being able to design and build creatively.

I started out keeping on top of tutorials but let it slip just before Christmas and struggled to manage my time well enough to catch up. I remember thinking that I would just catch up later at several points when I was more stressed and I know that kind of thinking isn't sustainable. I intend to catch up over the summer, and to keep using Maya even when I am caught up, so that I don't forget what I have learnt by September.
